And all this time I thought it was only me emitting some kind of dickhead-I'm sorry-muttonhead attracting pheromone at concerts.

There was one inconsiderate bastard in particular who was at a Ratdog show a couple of years ago. Apparently he had spent the first set planted firmly at the bar because he didn't show up near the stage where we were until the second set, and when he did arrive, he was drunker than 30 dollars. He weighed every bit of 300 pounds (this isn't a prejudicial statement against the obese, but it is a prejudicial statement against inconsiderate bastards who don't give a damn about invading the space of others who paid the same ticket price to get in the door), and was staggering all over everyone around him. And true to form, he was yelling and hooting during Bob's solo acoustic material opening the set like he was going for the blue ribbon in the pig calling contest at the Billhilly County Fair. El Paso, The Winners, and Blackbird were all a wash. My wife was afraid she might have offended a lady standing next to her when she called him an asshole after he plowed into her, and when she apologized, the woman said, "Are you kidding? I just told him to get the fuck away from me!"

I feel ya.

I was at an Allmans show a few years back and was groovin' to the tunes close to the front, when all of a sudden some asshole who was so shitfaced he couldn't stand up straight pushed (rather violently) close to where me and my buddies were. He started dancing without any regard to where his arms and legs went. Then he started "singing" - more like Donna moaning, but worse. A few of us near him politely asked him to move a couple of times, but he refused, even after a good "move your F***ing ass, asshole!" After he hit me twice in the face with his hands, I gave up, and me and my buddies moved back. Yeah, we were a little distanced from the band, but that asshole was ruining the show for us.

ugh. people like that can seriously ruin a show.
